Magic Tree House: Ghost Town at Sundown

Download Lap Book Now

Part of our summer reading. 
We are c completing our Magic Tree House Book #20
"Ghost Town at Sundown"

This is a resource that is excellent if you decide to use it 
to have your students retell the story. 

First we narrate orally what the book was about. 
we proceed by writing on each mini book in the book 
These mini books are singled out by chapters.

Then, we can retell the story by reading our lap book 
out-loud one more time. 
Narration and writing main ideas are very 
important to have your kids remember 
stories and use their vocabulary. 

We love getting crafty on our projects and so we have aged everything
using our favorite "shoe polish"

We colored the inside of the lap book and also
aged it. 

Because this is a book about Mustangs horses. 
Some of the inside mini books have horses. 
However, each mini book is designed according to their respective chapters.
